UU ins U'eucls S chool Si st em As the main executive department in our public school system, the superintendent’s office has numerous responsibilities. Seeing that the policies of the Board of Education are carried through is tlie principal job of Dr. Steven N. Watkins, superintendent, and his two assistants, Min. Gravce Elliott, who serves as his secretary, and Miss Laura Sayre, who works for Dr. Wat- kins and does secretarial work for the Board of Education. The purchase of all school supplies, from typing paper to those familiar text books, as well as instructional services and operation and maintenance of the school building, is handled by this office. Supervision of the nine Ames schools is carried out through their respective principals. “In discussing the problem of whether or not to hold any public forums this year, a group representing the several service and other local agencies decided to have one forum and bring to Ames some outstanding personality,” l)r. Watkins stated. ‘ Robert St. John was selected and his topic was “Dictatorship or Democracy.’ The forum was held Sunday afternoon, Feb. 15, and approximately 800 people attended. The program was thought to be quite successful and a similar policy will be followed next year,” concluded Superintendent Watkins. ★ Mi Sayre and Mrs, Klliott Six Superintendent Watkins Also sponsored by this office was night school, which was offered for three sessions. Included on this program were metal working, plastics, woodworking, commercial training, home eco- nomies, and photography. Headed by Everett Hit land, director of adult education, the various activities were conducted by several people. Miss Madalene Canvin taught shorthand with Mrs. Mvrna Green teaching typing. In charge of woodworking were Laurence Simmering and Ronald Easter. Miss Edna Mundt supervised the home economic classes, assisted by Mrs. Mary Welch. Miss Dorothy Dillan, Miss Ella Mae McDermott. Miss Dorothy Merrick, and Miss Gladys Olson. Richard Trump was in charge of photography. Highlight of the year for Superintendent Watkins was his tour through various sections of tin United States. One of ten Iowans chosen for this trip, he toured Chicago, Detroit, and New York. The group visited industry and big business to find out the things a high school student should know when he graduates. Because of the executive abilities of Dr. Watkins and his office personnel, Ames schools continued to function smoothly and efficiently throughout the school year.I. M ciniS oorJincites JJicjli Principal Adams Everyone knows that it is Mr. Herbert Adams who supervises the public address system every morning. However, not everyone realizes that the rest of his numerous duties keeps him busy before and after school hours. Supervising and arranging schedules of approximately 480 stu- dents. 32 teachers and many different classes plus making out a yearly calendar require many hours before school starts in the fall. Once school begins he takes over as administrator and advisor to become a combination backer of the school. His genuine interest in Ames High’s curricular and extra-curricular activities was shown by his loyal support of all school func- tions during the school year of 1947-1948. Because the principal's office is the heart of Ames High, it is always a busy place. Through this office passes all of the work that needs to be done to keep the school running smoothly. Regis- tration is carried out through this office each November and March when students decide what subjects they will take the following semester. All schedules are kept here to help teachers, students, and the office locate students during the day. The weekly calendar is compiled by this office from lists turned in by the teachers. Any conflicts are brought to the attention of the teachers so that the schedule may be re- arranged. Attendance is kept for each period throughout the day here, and any contacts with the public are made. A good share of these tasks fall upon Mr. Adams’ two able secretaries and receptionists, Mrs. George W. Berglund, better known as Margie, and Mrs. Merrill L. Finnerty, also better known as Selma. Completing the principal’s office staff are several junior and senior girls. It is their duty to gather attendance slips from the classrooms each period and record absentees. They act as general messenger girls throughout the day by delivering passes and messages to students as well as to teachers. They also make out and deliver those famed blue slips to students, and aid the two secretaries by typing letters and filing records. For the services the girls receive one-quarter credit per semester to aid in the necessary requirement for graduation. Assisting Mr. Adams with high school ad- ministration duties are Miss Charlotte Nelson, girls’ adviser, and Everett Ritland. boys’ ad- viser. Their duties consist in part of approving absence and tardy excuses and directing voca- tional guidance work. ★ Margie, Selma. ami two of the a i-tant Scw«IjEIT to right: I»r. Watkins, N. J. Ftrintnall. Mrs. James Johnson. Ray Cunningham, Prank Howell. Frank Adams. David Edwards The Ames Board of Education’s chief duty is to serve as a governing board and adminis- trative group for the Ames public school system. The members of the board are elected for three year terms in March, and they are stag- gered so that there will always be experienced members on the board. A secretary is appointed by tin- board for each year, and a treasurer is elected every two years. The board meets on the second Monday of each month in the high school building. Keeping the nine public schools of Ames run- ning efficiently entails much planning. This group is responsible for the handling of the budget and approving all financial matters concerning the schools as well as deciding gen- eral school policies. The school board is also responsible for the placing and supervising of over one hundred faculty appointments. Members of the Board of Education are Kay Cunningham, president; Frank B. Howell, secretary; Hiram Munn, treasurer; Mrs. James Johnson, N. J. Brintnall, Frank Adams, and Dr. J. I). Taylor. Dr. Taylor was elected in March to replace the late Dave Edwards, veteran school board member for eighteen years.

Each treasurer i responsible for bis set of records to Miss Mary McNally, general treas- urer. and to her student assistant. Joanne Bappe. When an organization needs money, the treasurer tills out a requisition, enters it on bis books, and takes the requisition to the general treasurer. There the amount is recorded on a dupl icate set of books and the check is written. Much credit should be given to Andy Christen- sen. student athletic treasurer for three years, and to his sponsor. D. G. Martt. for keeping athletic accounts. ★ Athletic treasurer- Andy anil Mr. Hart! Tor Row: Tilden. Hukill. Christensen, Hinrichsen Mippi.k Row: Mary Taylor. I . I.ursen, Coodspeed.

This familiar chant heard all year long as bewildered sopho- mores made continual blunders in the hall, assemblies and after-hours' parties describes the former Welch and Central students. Starting out in the fall by lendimr strong reserves to the varsity football squad, the sopho- mores gave both physical support and student cooperation to both home and out-of-town games. Bob Buck, the extra point specialist and defensive quarterback. Dick Cox. dim Champlin and Mark Sowers earned their first major "A ' for their participation in varsity games. The sophomore team won four of seven games, but the prospects for the next two years of football are very encouraging. In basketball Bob Buck led his class by being the only regular starter for every varsity game. A thrilling swisher made by Buck in the last second of the home Ames-Newton game gave the Ames fans something to remember. This shot will not be forgotten by Ames High and also the Newton team, but his cooperation with the team throughout the whole season and his well-aimed one handed push shots will be seen in Buck’s remaining two years in Ames High. Losing a heartbreaking game to the Marshall- town sophomore squad by a score of 20 to 32, the potential Little Cyclone varsity squad tied for first place for the Central Iowa Conference sophomore title. Throughout the season Dick Cox led his teammates in play and took high scoring honor by piling up 184 points. Working with Cox were dohn Brayton, Don Arnev. Dave Bappe and Mark Sowers to make up the usual starting five. On tin humorous side Bill • Zombie" Busbec caused continual uproar wherever lie went by his unusual wit and jokes. The sophomore girls also contributed to the first year of high school history for the sopho- more class. Betty Lou Jones, the only girl in the swing band, kept up with the other members bv playing a mean saxophone. Ruth Dahl piano soloed in the spring orchestra concert playing Concerto in (i Minor. The high soprano voice of Robert (iillpatrick was heard in a cappella choir and various school dances. Supporting the youth center, uniting their efforts in their school work, participating in all school activities and becoming a stronger class, the 1947-1048 sophomores have indeed stood up to Ames High’s motto, Ames High. Aims High - and they, too, are aiming higher.

The annual event is planned so that new students will become familiar with Ames High’s traditions and become acquainted with the members of the three groups and their sponsors. To begin tin- party, which started at seven o’clock, each new student introduced himself and told where he came from. George ('lark, a Fourteen member of t lie Hi-Y cabinet, served as master of ceremonies for the program and introduced the speakers. Darrell Moore, president of Ili-Y, and Anne Barnard, president of Girl Reserve, welcomed the new students to Ames High. Ray Cunningham, secretary of the Y.MCA at Iowa State college, led group singing. Musical chairs and several other games provided an opportunity for new and old students alike to really "let their hair down” and become acquainted with each other. To conclude the evening, the Hi-Y cabinet served refreshments of milk, cookies, and ice cream.m ones cat cl Recording A Aid CL ciASeA To»' Kow: Baker. Mhyrc, Fitch. Kjare. .1. Dunlap.

Weber This year boys and girls interested in film projection and operation formed the Film Operator's Club. Cnder the sponsorship of Kenneth Page, this newly organized club takes care of presenting sound films, film strips, slide and opaque projectors, records and radio aids. Although the main jobs of the thirteen mem- bers who belong to the club are to handle re- cordings and movies and to operate films as a service to all classes, it is also their duty to see that all movies are shipped out properly and on time. Each day the visual aid room is set up for the day’s program, schedules are checked and requested equipment is distributed to teachers. Then during the day. the members are excused from their study halls to operate the equipment. New film operators receive their training by observing the different procedures used in oper- ating the films and records as experienced work- ers run the machines. Next they do the actual work by themselves under close supervision. After several weeks of this training the new operators are given permission by Mr. Page to work by themselves. Being able to do this work qualifies each member for a lfi mm film oper- ator’s card from the Bell-IIowell Film Company of Chicago. Working on a paper drive held last fall with the music organizations, the Film Operator’s Club received enough money to purchase a new tape recorder which is being used to record music programs, talks given in the speech de- partment and various assemblies. A program of 30 minutes may be recorded on one tape strip. The officers of the elub for 1047-1048 were Loren Wymorc, president; Jack Dunlap, vice- president; and Ted Myhre, secretary-treasurer.

Butler Cubs' club, Ames High school’s journalism organization, is offered as an extra-curricular activity to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are not taking the regular journalism course offered in the senior year. Through this organi- zation underclassmen become accustomed to journalistic style and have some knowledge of newspaper publishing before actually enrolling in the journalism course offered in the senior year. During the first semester of this year the club worked on projects to help them learn the fundamentals of writing good straight news and feature stories. One of these projects was the collection of newspaper stories and attempting to analyze why these stories were good or bad by using good stories as a comparison. n find- ing a good example of news or feature writing, the student chose another subject and tried to adjust the general plan of the model to his topic. The club held monthly meetings to acquaint members of tin organization with journalistic techniques. In the fall a luncheon was held in the faculty lunch room in place of a regular meeting. After completing this work, the club’s main project was to write and edit the Weekly Web during the first weeks of the second semester before tin new journalism class began publish- ing the weekly newspaper. The crowning achievement for a Cub is win- ning recognition as a reporter for the W b. After ten inches of his material has been printed he is added to the staff as reporter. Several (bibs’ Club members became Web reporters during the second semester by this means. Another project of the journalism class dur- ing the second semester was a high school pres- idential election.

Highlight of the year came at the end of .January when Ames High’s Stu- dent Council was host to high school student councils from all over Iowa. The council is comprised of nineteen members. Each of the school's eighteen homerooms sends its president to represent it on the council. The nineteenth member is the student body presi- dent. who presides over the council’s weekly meetings and represents the whole student body at assem lilies. in order that all phases of business can be carried on most efficiently, the council is di- vided into seven committees. A council member is appointed chairman of each committee, and the remaining members are chosen from the student body. The assembly committee arranged for all assemblies during the year, including both pro- fessional and home talent shows. The awards committee provided for and approved all awards in the fields of athletics, scholarship, drama, band and vocal music. The noon-hour commit- tee planned entertainment for those students remaining at school at noon. The noon-hour Thirty-twoState C on onterence in annar v program included volleyball and softball tourna- ments, movies and dances. The social committee sponsored several mat- inee dances and provided refreshments at open house. Members of the citizenship committee were on the job enforcing school traffic laws, and the service committee kept the lost and found desk in operation. By means of the sound system, newspapers and posters, the publicity committee advertised all school affairs. Officers for this year were: president, Dave Murray and Darrell Moore; vice-president, Clair Calhoon and Boh Hall; secretary, Marilyn Ethington and Nancy Butler: treasurer, Jean Goodspeed and Joyce Gray.

Through the efforts of the governing board and the Cyclone Center members, the center was almost completely reorganized after being evict- ed from its original location. “The Banner Ball"’ was the name of the informal dance sponsored by the Cyclone Center in February. Decorations were figures repre- senting the four parts of school that appear on the banner in the study hall. They wen scholarship, friendliness, music and athletics. The hundred couples that attended the affair danced to music of the Ames High Swingsters. The field house was acquired and a project of cleaning and painting was begun. Volunteer help made this plan possible. The O'Neil Dairy started the project of equiping the building by donating a new ice cream freezer and soon the center purchased a fountain, counter, steel tables and chairs and a radio-phonograph sound system. In the field house the center was not only able to offer ping pong, dancing, cards and table games, but basketball, volleyball and bad- minton as well. Though the center was plagued with financial worry through most of the year, its members were able to ease the need by raising money through a magazine subscription campaign, rummage sale, donkey basketball game and dance. Various local organizations contributed in time and money to aid the center in its operation. The center was not only a place for recreation but also served as a place where new friendships were started and old ones renewed. Running the Cyclone Center is carried on by the governing board made up of the chair- men of the eight committees, the general board chairmen and one representative each from Welch and Central. The board consisted of Anne Cooper and Mr. Keith Rushing, finance; George Carter and Mrs. J. B. Robbins, employ- ment; Nancy Butler and Mrs. J. C.

Chaplain De Loss Markon, of the Veterans’ hospital in Des Moines, was this year’s Friend- ship Week speaker. During the war he served as chaplain of the famed 34th “Red Bull” divi- sion through the African. Sicilian and Italian campaigns. The first week of February was chosen as Friendship Week. February 1 was designated as “Go-to-Church Sunday” and all high school students were urged to make a special effort to attend church. During that week a general assembly was held on three mornings and the Reverend Mar ken discussed one phase of the abundant life on each morning. Both the Hi-Y and Girl Reserve cabinets cooperated to furnish devotions and music for these assemblies, and parents of Ames High students were invited. A sophomore forum, a junior and senior girls' forum and a junior and senior boys’ forum dur- ing which student problems were discussed were also held during the week. Special emphasis was placed on the opportunity for students to have personal conferences with the speaker. Chaplain Markon, through his understanding of young people, his good judgment, and his inspirational talks, gave to Ames High school a memorable Friendship Week which will not soon be forgotten.

I.idcll Sot only did Hi-V extend its activities throughout school and community, but it went half-way around the globe to help someone in need. The organization's major project during the year was the supporting of Jacques Aufrey, a French war orphan. At Christmas time the Hi-V sent .Jacques a complete suit of clothing to supplement those that were sent to him earlier in the year. During the year such Friday morning pro- grams as movies, talks by Hay Donels and by sportseaster Jon Hackett were featured in the hobby groups and general meetings. Sponsor- ship of the three class firesides was handled by Hi-V cabinet. Hi-V took upon itself the task of making a bit of Christmas cheer for the men at the Story County Home. The organization prepared pres- ents and baskets of fruit for 1 he men at the home. In conjunction with the (!irl Reserve organi- zation. Ili-V sponsored Ames High’s annual Friendship Week in February. The object, of this week is to promote religious activity in life. This year’s speaker, De Loss Markcn, a former army chaplain, proved to be very suc- cessful. Any organization must have its administra- tive force and so must the Hi-V. The first semester cabinet was made up of Darrell Moore, president; Dick Fincham, vice-president; Dave Larson, secretary; Wayne Brown, treasurer; George Lidell. publicity; and John Dickinson, concessions chief. Second semester cabinet in- cludes Dick Fincham. president; John Drayton, vice-president; Frank Vance, secretary; Wayne Brown, treasurer; George Lidell, publicity; and Howard Siemens, concessions chief.

Girl Reserves this year supported twelve-year-old Jeanine Doyen of Belgium. Gifts were sent to her at her birthday and at Christmas. Letters were also sent regularly. In reply, .1 canine sent letters about her life and drawings which she had made. Once again this year holly wreaths were sold at the Christmas season to earn money for the organization. The city was divided into dis- tricts which were all canvassed by salesgirls. The girls also sold special Ames High pencils with the athletic schedules printed on them, and they had charge of concessions at two basketball games. Theme for the semi-monthly meetings of the whole Girl Reserve organization was “G.R. Goes Visiting.” During the first semester G.R. visited the College Board at Marshall Field's with Nancy Karly. an Iowa State college student, and Guatemala with Mrs. C. S. Reddy. At the Christmas program Dick Vogl from WOI read part of Dickens' Christmas Carol. and at the following meeting a few members of the club discussed their favorite hobbies, exhibiting some of their collections.

Cnknown to most of the Ames High students, the school library boasts a collection of 6,851 books, a number to which more are constantly being added. Teachers often find new books they think would help their students in research work and in this way suggestions for new books are given to the librarian. All books found in the library are divided into ten divisions. Different classifications are pasted over the various shelves to guide the stu- dent when he is looking for a book. Not only books on social and natural sciences, fine arts, literature, fiction, biography, history and many encyclopedias and references, but also 58 different magazines can be obtained in the library. The magazines are of the technical and educational type as well as ones suited for escape reading. Two adjoining conference rooms are also in the library for use of the students. One room is used for showing vocational and college infor- mation. Forfy-onc(Council rjLeacls juniors Tor Row: I». Hall, IVtor . Arrasmith, P. Arnold Front How: Terr n -s. Mr . Dougnn. Mann.

The year was filled with events that will long In- re me inhered. At- tention can be focused on several juniors who were outstanding in many and varied ways. Taking a share of the limelight was little-'N- mightv Ramon Runkel, with his football prow- ess. Ramon also teamed up with Page Arnold to hceome a very speedy combination on the track field, dim Robertson proved his ability in track by taking two ‘•firsts." the shot put and the discus, at the annual Drake Relays, dim also stood out in football, as did Hob Hall. Dick Hall and Perky Lidell, first team varsity bas- ketball stars, performed smoothly on the basket- ball courts, while in another sport, golf. Dick Webber took top honors. The girls, however, were not to Ik outdone. “And how about the little moron who cut off his arms so he could wear a sleeveless sweater." brought to mind Sheila Moore, and her never- ending supply of jokes. Susan Tilden and Salle Cole were elected as two of the ten finalists for Spilt it Sweetheart. A leading role in the Dra- matic Club play was played by Rev Summers, in the part of a wilful old woman. Nancy But- ler and Debby Munn were elected president and vice-president, respectively, of Girl Reserve. Juniors who served on stage crew for the class play will recall the laborious process of “gooking" the tree used on the set. Another task was that of fastening real apples to the tree. However, this seemed simple compared to the bigger problem of fastening the leaves to the branches! The crowning point of the year for both juniors and seniors was “The Big Show." bet- ter known as the Junior-Senior Prom, which was held this year on June first. The theme for the dance was a circus, and the gym was appro- priately decorated. Sideshows and animals were to be seen everywhere to carry out the idea. The band was seated in a sawdust ring, and another ring was used for intermission enter- tainment. The whole junior class cooperated effectively to make the affair a success. Altogether, the juniors are looking forward to a happy and eventful year as almighty seniors. Wake up ami sing. II.

The croup aims to provide a semi-monthly program which will be of interest to all students. Programs are 11 resen ted by high cIhh 1 groups .such as music or home talent assemblies, as well as by out-of- school speakers or groups. In the fall students heard an assembly on tire prevention, one by the Ames High delegates T- Hawkeye Hoys' State, and a home talent as- sembly presented on the night of Open House. Later assemblies included such subjects as micro-waves, sponsored by Bell Telephone Co., and a movie on the World Series. The vocal organizations presented the annual Christmas candlelight service, and later an instrumental program was presented by the Drake Cniver- sity Concert Band. Speakers included Frank I'lish, who spoke on accident prevention: ( K. .Jones, who presented a program on gyroscopes: Henry Thielman. speaking on Russian schools; and Carl Svenson. an Iowa State college student from Sweden, who told about his native country.

To strengthen homeroom competition, trophies were given to the winners of the basketball tourneys in addition to the grand championship trophies given each year to the sophomore, junior and senior homeroom with the most points, hi the senior league. 237 took top place in basketball with 235 second. The second straight year 221 captured their league, this time the junior cir- cuit. with 234 following closely on their heels. The sophomore battle was won by 206 with 108 a close second. At the end of the regularly scheduled games, each homeroom voted for a first and second all- star team, with final tabulation done by Ray Smalling and Dick Shore, who acts as Ray’s secretary and statistician. These teams included seniors (first team) Wayne Finholt. Bill Dainc, John Angle. Rogene Arney and Jim Aikman; (second team) Bill Hukill, John Taft. Stan Hol- land. Bill I loll and Merle Eggert. The Juniors were (first team) Leonard Paulson, Page Arnold. Bill Byrus. Fred Martin and Wayne Brown: (second team) Ken Chi, Paul Arra- smith. Jack Peters, Bob Hall and Frank Blair. On the sophomores first team were Bob Walser, Chick Arnold. Otis Corbin. Harold Olson, Nor- man Dale: (second team) Bob Anderson. John Midgorden, Allan Abbott. Gary Carr and Nor- man Edwards. Besides basketball, twelve other sports were represented on the intramural program start- ing with pass and touch football in the fall and concluding with a track meet in the spring. An 18 hole medal play golf tournament was held in the fall and another in the spring, A model airplane contest was also held in spring. Tennis tournaments were also during these seasons. During the winter tournaments were held in such sports as tug-o-war. ping pong, badminton, bowling, wrestling and volleyball. Spring in- terest centered about softball and horseshoes as well as the track meet. The faculty challenged the senior volleyball champs to match and won handily from 235 15-4, 15-7 and 15-14. The faculty representatives Ray Smalling and Ken Wells also downed badminton champs Bud Winfrey and Bill Hukill in a challenge match. A great deal of credit for the success of this program should be given to Ray Smalling, intra- mural director. Helping Ray with many of his duties arc the class managers. They are Bill Hukill and Rogene Arney. seniors; Dick Mar- tin and John Barber, juniors; and Conrad Ber- how. sophomore. Also responsible for the fine all-around program is the intramural council, consisting of one member of each homeroom plus Ray Smalling. This council determines all intra- mural policies and decided all protests. Members of the Council include seniors Hubert Bowers, lit); George Peterson, 213; Tom Kelly. 232: Bud Winfrey, 235; Tunney Hagen. 237; and John Fitzsimmons, 238.

Homerooms 138 and 213. respectively, were the runners-up. Other tournaments were held in baseball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, ping pong and bowling. Starting last fall with a picnic held at Brook- side Park, G.A.A. opened a larger program this year than in any previous year. G.A.A. is open to any girl in high school who can fulfill the initiation requirement of 100 points acquired by participation in organized sports, skill tests, leadership, unorganized sports and by complet- ing the health charts. Four points are given for each hour of participation. After a girl has been initiated, she is eligible to earn the minor “A” and the major “A" which are earned by 500 and 1.000 points respectively of activities. When a girl has earned 1,500 points, she receives a black and orange felt dog. In order that more girls could take a part in the organization this year, a representative was chosen from each homeroom to represent her room on the council. This enabled more girls to become members. A recognition board chose an outstanding girl of G.A.A. each month to be the “Girl of the Month.” These girls were chosen because of their interest in the club, their attitude, school activities and their per- sonalities. Officers for the year are Marilyn Beckley, president: Verna Belle Rouze, vice-president; Susan Tilden, secretary; Margaret Taylor, intramural chairman; Pebby Munn. point re- corder ; and Janet Hoff, social chairman.

The 1947-48 edition of the Little Cyclones won five games out of sixteen regularly scheduled contests and gained a berth in the state basketball finals at Iowa City. The team finished in a tie for last place in the Central Iowa conference with Newton.

Other wins came at the expensi of Nevada twice and Webster City. Ames also played non-loop foes Port Dodge, Mason City, and Sioux City (Central) to round out the schedule. The squad showed many spurts of fine basket- ball during the season, but due to the difficulty of finding a winning combination, defeat was tasted often.

Before the start of tournaments teammates selected Darrell (Lefty) Moore, senior forward, as honorary captain for ihe season. With such a mediocre record, the Little Cyclones were expected by the fans to go down in their first tournament game, but with a spirit that is worth twenty points every game the locals won their district and sub-state tourneys, qualifying for the finals in Iowa City. Coach Wells deserves much credit for developing such a great bunch after many discouraging losses.

In addition to the traditional Christmas candle- light service and the Tri-City .Music Festival, church and assembly programs were given by the A ('appella choir and other music groups. Mixed chorus, training ground for Girls' Glee club and A (appella choir, directs most of its energies toward preparing its members for the Christmas program and the Festival conceit. Chorus officers are Elizabeth L. Martin, pres- ident ; Bob Rihggenberg, vice-president and secretary-treasurer; and Ruth Anderson, libra- rian. Oldest of the vocal music organizations, (liris' Glee club was featured in the annual Christmas service. Florence Likely, president; Donna Myrland, vice-president; Jacqueline Sweeney, sec ret ary-treasurer; and Virginia Cunningham, librarian, are Glee club's officers of this year. A ('appella choir sang in assembly and at sev- eral local churches and civic groups, as well as taking part in the Christmas and music festival with Fort Dodge high school and junior college. The choir appeared for the final time at com- mencement in June. Alumni from as far back as 1927 were present at the annual Choir reunion held on December 22. Heading the Choir are Forrest Barnes, president: Jo Ann Sorenson, vice-president: Ella Mae Robertson, secretary- treasurer; Wayne Spangler, librarian; and Wayne Brown and Marilyn Soma, robe-keepers. Several small vocal groups took part in this year's vocal programs. The different groups sang for many organizations in Ames and neighboring towns. A paper drive was held in the fall. Funds from the drive, which netted $21(1, went to buy new music and to replace wornout copies of old favorites. j u I 2 A 1 n o% 9 I' I 4 4 , S m Toe How: K. Hobertson. Armstrong, Gieso. Irvine.

Day The instrumental music department sponsored a spring concert series this year to raise money for the various instrumental music organizations. The concert hand presented its part of the series at a concert on April it. truest conductor for the program was Leo Kucinski, director of the world famous Monahan Post hand in Sioux City. Iowa. Favorites of the audience were Tin Victory Garden Suilt and Sabre Dance. Janet Hoff, senior, soloed on Concertino for Clarinet by Weher and the double trombone trio composed of Frank Vance, Dick ’ x. Bill LaGrange, John Midgorden, David Jehlik and Wayne Brown played Cavaliers by Johnson. Concert hand is the largest of the instrumental music groups, having ( f members. Officers of band were Bill Gacsxler, president; Janet Hoff, vice-president; Pat Larsen, secretary; and Sylvia Day, librarian. Many intricate designs were worked out by the 60 piece marching band, in cooperation with the Pep club, and the two groups performed at the half-times of all football games. One of the most outstanding of these performances was the portrayal of the history of Ames High with a musical background. In addition, the band made trips to Fort Dodge and Boone for pro- grams. The baton twirlers who added variety to the hand were Ruth Anderson. Joneta Wheelock. Ruby Alexander. Delores Swearingen, Gene Lackore, and Beverly Peterson. Beverly won first honors at the state twirlers” contest. Ames High is noted for its pep, vigor and vitality and the ever-present pep band lent its hit. The pep hand received many compliments for its performances at the various basketball tourneys. Student directors of pep hand were Bill Gaessler and Cordell Baker. Fi ty-eiyhtBack Row: Ivintz.

Minnesota Civic Sym- phony. The orchestra s part of the spring concert series consisted of a performance on April 2:}. This orchestra was composed of the Ames High concert orchestra in addition to members of the Welch Junior High orchestra. Soloists were Ruth Dahl, sophomore pianist, and a string quartette from Welch school. Miss Jean Miller, string instructor, directed a special grade school orchestra made up of young musicians in the third to the sixth grade. Under the direction of Richard Day, the theatre orchestra is respons- ible for the musical preludes heard at the drama club, senior and junior plays and commencement and baccalaureate exercises.

Director for both band and orchestra is Richard Day. Fifty-nineCL SSeS prepare Students jor iduture In spile of the interest developed in athletics, music and extra curricular activities, the greater part of Arnes High students’ time is spent in the classroom, learning to he wise citizens of tomorrow. Initiated this year was a new type of home economies course called Boys' and (liris' Home Be and designed to instruct future husbands and wives the proper way to run a home. Chemistry students buckled down to under- standing the atomic theory as well as balancing bewildering chemical formulas this year. Quali- tative analysis occupied the last six weeks period, and for most of that time the odor of hydrogen sulfide became familiar to other students as it wafted through Arnes High's hallowed halls. The various mathematics courses called for much racking of brains and gnashing of teeth. Sophomores were introduced to a maze of circles and triangles in plane geometry, while juniors and seniors sweated out more complicated prob- lems in second year algebra, solid geometry and trigonometry. Social science classes instructed juniors about American history and senior's about American government. Sociology and economics completed this phase of work. Another vital part of the Ames High cur- riculum was the vocational guidance program. Early in March the annual career day was held. Besides an opening session, over fifty speakers ★ What i it. an? representing varied occupations spoke to small groups about job opportunities. Senior voca- tional conferences were also held during the year. Senior girls met with Miss Charlotte Nel- son and boys with Everett Kitland. The results of various aptitude and achievement tests taken in high school were shown to the seniors and possibilities of occupations were discussed. With a view toward tomorrow. Ames High students, guided by helpful teachers and ad- visers. completed a successful year of learning. ★ Gesy minds his manners Touche! Sixty Top Row : Ernst, Town. ymore Fipth Row: Pearson. Brue.

Robin- son When tin basketball season is over and sprint comes around the corner what does the young man's fancy turn to? Certainly not love so it must be golf. Late in March the golf enthusiasts begin wandering out to Homewood and if one listens he can hear a booming “Fore!” Playing host at the Little Cyclone Invitational, the golf team captured second in a field of the best teams from central Iowa. The squad coach- ed by Kay Smalling. went through a better than average year taking matches from Marshalltown and Boone. Roosevelt whacked off a few strokes less than Ames to put the local boys in second place at the Lincoln High Invitational. Homewood golf course was the stamping ground for Smalling’s golf men. Like the ten- nis squad the interteam competition was strong for a place on the traveling squad. Practice sessions were spent in determining team posi- tions on the basis of performance. Five seniors, one junior and a sophomore carried the main responsibilities for the squad in competition. They were Bill Hull. Jerry Johnson. Jim Aikman, John Taft. Jack Grant, Dick Webber and Don Platt. Reserve compe- tition kept the varsity squad on their toes throughout the season. The reserve squad was made up of Don Kelly, George Branigan, Don Beam. Bob Anderson, Bill Ohlsan and Wallace Wright. Having only one letterman returning, Ames High’s tennis squad went through a year of preparation and building. Coach Don Hartt had fifteen men vicing for the five positions on the squad. Losing five of the scheduled six dual meets the racketeers defeated only the West High of Waterloo squad. Roosevelt of Dos Moines humuliated the Little Cyclones 5-1 and 8-1 while East of Dos Moines followed the same pattern and defeated Ames 5-1 twice. Fort Dodge defeated the Little Cyclones in the single dual match with them 5-1. The district and state meets completed the schedule. Intersquad matches were played each week to determine team standings and as a result the number four and five positions changed as often as the weather. Bill Hukill went through the regular season undefeated and was the only Ames squad mem- ber to take a match from Fort Dodge, Roosevelt and East. The tennis traveling squad was made up of Hukill. Tom Earl, Bud Winfrey, Marshall Sclarow, John Fitzsimmons. Mark Sowers and Dick Hall. These reserves backed up traveling squad: Diek Swank. George Peterson. Bernie Clark, Bob Allbert. Andy Christensen, Norman Robinson, Boyd Clausen and Bob Walser. New nets, and a resurfacing job on the west court plus new lining on all the courts gave them that well groomed look for this year. 8urtj -ticotz ecoamzeS Wi innerS Winners of the coveted orange and black athletic “A" for athletic prowess are entitled to membership in the Ames High Varsity club. One of the most important Varsity «-lui proj- ects this year was assisting the faculty with ushering at all home athletic contests. On the lighter vide is the initiation of new members. There are two initiation periods, the first following the football season and the second after the completion of the sports schedule in the spring. First-year lotterwinners in football were re- quired to play a basketball game with tin senior members of Pep club between halves of a home basketball game, in spite of being handicapped by heavy sheepskins, boxing gloves, long under- wear and shackled legs, the Varsity club initiates came out on top. Besides this rigorous activity, all new members were required to gain the signature of each old member by repeating the preamble to the Varsity club constitution. In the spring. Varsity club members cele- brated with their annual picnic at Homewood golf course. Lotterwinners in basketball, track, golf and tennis were initiated then. Officers of this years organization were Jack Grant, president; ('lair Calhoon, vice-president; Dave Murray, secretary; Forrest Barnes, treas- urer; and John Garfield, historian. Kenny Wells acted as sponsor for the group. Tor How: Fincham. Byrug, La Grange, Grant. Bowers, Angle. Rozeboom, Murray, Robortaon Middle Row: Mr. Well». B. Hall. D. Hall. Campbell. Buck. Cox.

Christensen Late in May the Fire Squad members, with their dates, held the annual Fireman’s picnic which was financed by the money they took in from personal tines. Softball and plenty of food were the featured attractions. Keeping the halls clear of obstructions such as paper, “mislaid" books, or stray students kept Fire Chief Jack Grant and his secret ser- vice busy throughout the year. Other duties include supervising fire drills and guarding the doors to our hallowed halls before regular horn's. Fire Squad members are on duty before school in the morning, at noon, and after school to keep the halls in an orderly condition. The squad issues those red warnings to violators of the rules of order, and for their thankless job members receive activity tickets to all school events. Seniors are exempt from regular duties, but fill in as alternates during the absence of underclassmen. Members of the squad are chosen on recom- mendation of the faculty and approval of the members of the squad. Their dependability, willingness to cooperate with the faculty and students and general character arc taken into consideration when nominations for membership are made. Fire Squad meets each Thursday noon to discuss the general operation of its duties. This year’s organization was led by Jack Grant, fire chief; Dave Murray, assistant fire chief; and Darrell Moore, secretary-treasurer. Miss Ruth Miller served as sponsor.

Scventtj-nino£n ior a i max eA iJ inaf lyjear Fun and food! Those were the two things most responsible for making tin annual senior pienie a complete success! Besides this gala event, seniors were busy with various other acti- vities throughout senior week. .Inst when to put what foot where and how soon was the problem of all seniors as they practiced their marching “P’s and QV in pre- paring for baccalaureate and commencement. The class of '48 had Dr. Will Orr. Friendship Week speaker in 1047. as their commencement speaker. Baccalaureate speaker was Reverend Joseph Knutson. Seniors of 1948 were well prepared for some good reminiscing. And the memories of Ames High school days could hardly bo forgotten. Crammed with imports, dramatic productions, musical events. Red Cross activities (baby sit- ting. especially!) and all of the other activities which make school life three, unbeatable years— the seniors of ‘48 had a full high school life. Celebrities of the class of '48 included Janet Hoff, clarinet soloist at the spring concert; Bev Peterson, champion baton twirler at the state contest; and Mary Pierre and Esther Chi vers, winners of a four-year scholarship and a college entrance award, respectively .from the Pepsi- Cola company. Janet Miller was chosen Spirit Sweetheart with Anne Barnard and Rosie Iver- son as her attendents. Football captain was senior Bob Stewart while Lefty Moore captained the basketball team. Track co-captains were Forrest Barnes and John Angle. On June 4. 1948, they reached the end of their high school career, but the memories of each special event, each personal experience could never be forgotten. The Spirit would always prevail. ★ Pepsi-cola winner Mary Pierre ★ Shaff muggs at Hay-Ho Harmony ★ .Mary Jo has a vocational conference Eightg■mmmninTi“JAHN S OLLIER AGAIN A slogan signifying a service created to excel in all things pertaining to yearbook design and en- graving.
